Creative Christmas Activities

With Christmas just around the corner what better way to get into the spirit than doing some fun creative Christmas activities with your little ones? Here are just a few ideas from the Nursery Team!

Bauble painting

Brighten up your baubles by adding a splash of paint! Acrylic paint works best with a fine paint brush.

Christmas card making

Send personalised cards to family and friends!  We love this simple card idea:

  • Fold a A4 piece of card in half
  • Cut out a small, medium and large green triangles and stick onto card in ascending order
  • Decorate with circle stickers (available in all pound shops), add a star tree topper

Paper chains

Cut coloured A4 paper into even strips width length. Take a strip and form a loop and secure with tape, thread another strip of paper through the loop, form a loop and secure again with tape, continue in this fashion until desired length. Hang around the home to give it that festive feel!

Pine cone decorating

Collect pine cones which you can paint and add glitter to.  Or roll small pieces of plasticine into balls and stick them onto the cone.


Christmas gift labels

Reuse old Christmas cards by drawing square shapes on the picture side (enough room to add name and Christmas wishes) cut out and use a hole-punch to create a hole in the corner of the square. Thread through a short piece of string and tie the ends together. Label and add to presents!
